Davis scored 31 marks in the Oral and 58 marks in the Practical, to have an overall pass of eighty-nine percent, topping the Vincentian entries.

Hillaire scored 30 marks on the Oral and 54 marks on the Practical, as he returned overall eighty-four percent, while Ross scored 31 on the Oral and 43 on the Practical, to finish with seventy-four per cent, both exams combined.

This means that Davis, St Hillaire and Ross are eligible to umpire regional first class matches, which sets the platform for further elevation.

The top umpire was Mohammed Baksh of the United States of America, who compiled a total of ninety-eight percent.

Nazar Ali, also of the USA and Trinidadians, Kellmore Kowlessar and Barry Singh, all ended with ninety-seven percent.

In total, 83 umpires from eleven countries sat the examinations.

Sixty-seven were successful, which was a pass rate of eighty-one per cent, while nineteen were unsuccessful, reflecting a failure rate of nineteen per cent. (RT)
